A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Once Again Presenting, YOUR World Champions, The San Francisco Giants

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 13, 2015

Today is a day to celebrate. Don’t ever take a flag raising ceremony for granted. They’ll be flying long after we’re gone but only some get to see the short journey up the string for the first time. Today is a day to let go of all the bullshit in your life, about the team—all of it. Just enjoy.

I don’t think you could ever top the Brian Wilson flag raising ceremony. For so many reasons, that one will always be the best. How should they do it this year? Normally, I would say anything not directly spot lighting Bumgarner would be a travesty. But the dude is so understated, he probably just wants to watch.

I’m not frettin’ about the 3-4 start or the injuries or Crawford’s 1-13 in San Diego. None of it. Today is a day for the fans of this great franchise to embrace the team and salute their outrageous 2014 accomplishment.

The wind is blowing out today at a pretty healthy 15mph. Normally, that has me thinking about what it’s going to do to an airborne baseball. Today, all I can think about is how it’s going to make those three beauties dance….flutter….fly.

Forever.

    I’ve been mostly reading back issues of National Geographic that I had fallen behind on, but I’ve also been reading this very entertaining book about the ’08 season, on my Kindle.

    Just saw the banner raising ceremony highlights.
    Awesome.
    They got it right with Bum on the horse. Excellent.
    Memories forever…

      Yeah, it was all very cool. And that footage of Bum on the horse is an instant classic.

        I especially loved the sound of the wailing pedal steel in the background as he trotted towards the flag pole.

    Speaking of TV….the season finale of “Better Call Saul” was the first episode of the show that I didn’t find fully satisfying. Part of the thing, of course, is that, being a prequel, they can only take Saul to a certain point, because they have to have him end up being the Saul in “Breaking Bad.” It puts certain limitations on the writers. But, overall, it was a terrific first season of “Saul,” and a very worthy prequel.
    “Justified” has its series finale this week, and it’ll be interesting to see what all happens.
